Personally I use Dart (dart.net.au) and have been very happy with them.
Their technical boffins claim to be linux fluent however I haven't had
any need for support from them (yet).
They are part of the NSW Pipe network with free data from any PIPE user
which seems to include most of the NSW ISPs. Dart also provides free
data transfer between Dart users country wide but do not seem to provide
a mirroring service.
Plans are in 10G steps with shaping for over quota.
